WELCOME! (( WARNING! Contains both running / lifting journal))

ah... so then right on into it. I've been working out a few solid months now, with no real recording or logging of what I've been doing or my improvements. But I've gotten to the point where if I don't sit down and record everything, and set myself to a sched that I follow, I'm just not going to see the improvements I want! Also, I need help! I'm training (trying) for Track. I want to run the 800 (maybe 400 as well....) I should be an awesome runner, genetically, but I've never put myself to my full potential. My father was a world class runner (3:53 mile indoor) And my mom was a runner in college, and still runs marathons today. Either way, I don't like running all that much (ran 5:01 mile 10th grade but I never trained hard, or ate right, or anything...), but I'd love to see what I'm capable of... Either way, I look at weight lifting as a way to mold and work my physical self. I love lifting, I don't know how I went so long without it. But I'd love to improve more... It is during my school year. I am a senior in highschool, 17 years old. I have a rediculously tough sched, (4 AP classes) so I WONT BE GETTING THE BEST REST AND RECOVERY. This part really worries me, I'm afraid it will seriously keep me from getting the improvements I want. I am roughly 190 lbs and 6'3".
My diet is very healthy, no junk, all main meals virtually void of any fat. I can try and post specifics if needed. I take Whey suppliments (just 100% whey protein powder, 3-4 scoops a day!). I also take a multivitamin... uhm... any other questions just post?

On to the workouts! vroom

Overall I felt really weak today, I think it's because I did a little too much a few nights ago (friday night wooooo 430am wooo)
Yea.. Overall pretty solid. I realize my lifts are really weak, but then again, so am I, so I don't feel all that terrible.
Time to eat protein and do work! life ftw
